For an episode ostensibly about robots, there was an awful lot of girl power on display in “The Heavens Will Rise,” the latest episode of Caprica, directed by Michael Nankin. Our Avenging Angels are still world-building. Clarice is still scheming. Amanda makes a key move. Evelyn’s pulling strings. We meet the lovely and dangerous Fidelia. But there is one woman at the heart of the story…Lacy Rand.
Zoe may have been the apple of Clarice’s eye, but Lacy is the chosen one. Like Starbuck before her, we are watching this brave young woman be forged into a leader. The biggest regret I have about Caprica’s cancellation is that we won’t get to see her truly come into her own, but it’s clear we’re going to see her get well enough on her way.
What follow is a recap and review, and therefore CONTAINS SPOILERS.
